Minecraft mobs are a staple for the game as they are the additions that add character along with the biomes. In this article we take a look at the Minecraft Silverfish and all their features.
Minecraft mobs are varied and players may encounter different ones in different biomes. They are also differentiated on their behaviour as some may hurt the player and some may come useful in many situations. The Silverfish is hostile and will definitely try to kill you!
Here are all the features of Minecraft Silverfish.
Minecraft Silverfish are very small hostile mobs that only spawn from stone-like blocks. They are one of the smallest mobs in the game but that doesn’t mean that they are not be looked out for!

They have 8 health points and deal about 1.5 damage per attack. They have an appearance of a small worm like creature with silver spikes and a silver body.
Silverfish are naturally found in infested stone blocks that are found in Strongholds, underground Mountain biomes, igloo basements and woodland mansions.
They will spawn once the player breaks the blocks that they are in. Some spawners for Silverfish also spawn in End Portal rooms in Strongholds.
Silverfish are hostile towards players, iron golems and snow golems. They are very hard to get away from as they home on towards the player and also move through blocks.
They also call all the other Silverfish in range when they are hit. To prevent this from happening, players need to kill them in one-shot. Players can deal with them by enchanting their weapon with Bane of Arthropods.
Silverfish are not useful to the player at all and only drop 5 EXP orbs and nothing else.

"Monster egg" redirects here. For the item that spawns mobs when used, see Spawn Egg.
Infested blocks are blocks disguised as stone, cobblestone, deepslate, or any stone bricks variants, but spawn silverfish when broken in Survival or Adventure mode.
Infested blocks are not obtainable by Silk Touch, and are only available through the Creative inventory or commands. However, they can be retained from worlds played in versions where they were legitimately obtainable.
When the block is broken, whether by a player or by an explosion, a silverfish spawns where it was broken unless the difficulty is Peaceful or is ( is irrelevant).
Infested blocks take less time to break than their normal counterparts. When breaking them with a pickaxe, they take half as much time to break as their normal counterparts.
When mined with a tool not enchanted with Silk Touch, an infested block drops nothing and spawns a silverfish that immediately attacks the player. If the player attacks a silverfish directly with a sword, bow, or potion of Harming, or when a silverfish takes Poison damage, nearby infested blocks break, spawning more aggressive silverfish. If the silverfish is killed in one hit, then nearby infested blocks do not break, and no silverfish spawn from them.
When mined with a tool enchanted with Silk Touch, however, the equivalent non-infested block is dropped without spawning a silverfish on all game difficulties. Any Silk Touch-enchanted tool (including swords) will cause an infested block to drop its non-infested equivalent (that is, a pickaxe is not required). A player wishing to collect stone bricks from a stronghold safely should use Silk Touch-enchanted pickaxes.
Infested stone bricks are occasionally found in strongholds and igloo basements in place of normal stone bricks. Infested mossy and chiseled stone bricks also spawn in igloos, but they do not generate naturally in strongholds.
Infested cobblestone is found in the rarely generated "fake end portal" room in woodland mansions.
Infested stone can generate in the Overworld in the form of blobs. Infested stone attempts to generate 7 times per chunk in blobs of size 0-13, from altitudes 0 to 63, within one of the following biomes, or within a chunk that is at least partially occupied by one of these biomes:
Infested stone can replace stone, granite, diorite, andesite, tuff, and deepslate. If it replaces tuff or deepslate, it will become infested deepslate.
Infested blocks are generated when a silverfish enters the respective normal block form. In Bedrock Edition, letting a silverfish enter regular stone bricks turns them into infested stone instead of the infested stone bricks.
When mined, an infested block spawns a silverfish that immediately attacks the player. If the player attacks a silverfish directly with a sword, bow, or potion of Harming, or when a silverfish takes poison damage, nearby infested blocks break, spawning more aggressive silverfish. If the silverfish is killed in one hit, then nearby infested blocks do not break, and no silverfish spawn from them.
Note blocks placed on infested blocks produce flute sounds[Bedrock Edition only] or harp sounds[Java Edition only], while those placed on the non-infested stone, cobblestone, or stone bricks produce bass drum sounds.
In Bedrock Edition, a player can distinguish infested from normal blocks by observing that an infested block takes a bit faster to break when using a pickaxe than the stone it appears to be, but without a pickaxe, it still breaks faster.
A silverfish does not spawn if the block is destroyed by the ender dragon.
In Java Edition, using the debug screen, a player can identify whether or not a block is infested.
Please remove this notice once you've added suitable sounds to the article.

Silverfish are hostile mobs that hide in infested blocks found in strongholds located in Extreme Hills or Extreme Hills Edge biomes. They are relatively small, have a bug-like figure with silver skin with tiny black eyes. Provoking a Silverfish can attract others in the same area. Since they can see through walls, they find their way to the player and start inflicting damage. It's better to avoid conflict with them because they can generate a massive swarm enough to overwhelm any player. On the other hand, this property can also be used to create an infinite XP farm.
Silverfish also drop no reward for killing them aside from 5 experiences. Silverfish was the basis for Endermite's and Redstone Bug's design.
|Hostility Level||Hostile Mob|
|Health Points||8 health points|
|Where to Find||Near the End portal|
|Attack Strength||Easy and Normal: 1; Hard: 1.5|
|Attack Method||Runs towards you and tries to hit you|
|Experience Points||5 experience points|
Silverfish can spawn from infested blocks, which generate in strongholds, igloos with basements, woodland mansion fake portal rooms, and mountain biomes upon being broken. However, they do not spawn Silverfish do not appear if the block is broken with Silk Touch. When the block is broken, Silverfish will pop out and attack. Destroying one of these blocks via creepers or TNT will kill the silverfish instantly before it has time to emerge. In regular gameplay, silverfish blocks occur rarely.
They will spawn only at light level 11 or less while spawning from monster spawners. They will also not spawn within a 5-block radius of any player. Naturally, silverfish spawners are created in strongholds in end portal rooms.
Silverfish can "call" other silverfish in the area upon being hit. These silverfish can see through walls and find their way to the players. When idle, silverfish will enter a nearby stone, cobblestone, stone bricks, mossy stone bricks, cracked stone bricks, or chiseled stone bricks block, transforming it into the respective infested block if /gamerule mob griefing is set to true. They cannot infest mossy cobblestone, slab, and stairs variants of these blocks.
When they suffer poison damage or damage inflicted by the player and survive, they may cause other silverfish within a 21×11×21 area to break out of their monster eggs. The player can, therefore, prevent other silverfish from appearing by killing them in one shot. They take more damage from tools with the Bane of Arthropods enchantment. They are the fifth smallest mobs in Minecraft.
Silverfish can cause damage to a player. This occurs when a silverfish is touching a player and a change of the Y-coordinate (elevation) of either a player or silverfish occurs. This can easily kill a player, in a confined space, since receiving damage causes a player to perform a short "hop," which counts as a Y-cord change. This allows the silverfish to damage a player again as a player is coming back down from the initial "damage hop". Successive hits by silverfish will cause player’s health to decrease drastically. If a silverfish is standing on soul sand, it will slowly take suffocation damage and die.
It is advised to avoid conflicts with silverfish altogether, as they will simply generate a massive swarm that can easily overwhelm any player. If a player does choose to challenge silverfish or ends up having an encounter, it is advised that they wear armor, as silverfish can quickly deal massive amounts of damage as the swarm grows.
It is advisable to use melee weapons as they are amongst the smaller naturally spawning mobs. If a player is experienced with a bow, then using ranged combat may reduce the size of a swarm. A simple tactic to combat a swarm of silverfish is to simply build a two-block high pillar and attack from there as silverfish do not have any range and only deal damage via contact. Do not use splash potions as nearby silverfish will be provoked, causing greater difficulty with combating silverfish.
High-level enchantments equipped on a sword can also be very efficient, like a diamond sword with Sweeping Edge complemented by a high level of Bane of Arthropods can take out an entire swarm of silverfish in one swipe.

Did You Know?
In Bedrock Edition, letting a silverfish enter regular stone bricks turns them into infested stone instead of infested stone bricks.
Both Silverfish and Endermites, which they are very similar to, suffocate in Soul Sand.
Silverfish and Cave Spiders are the only mobs whose spawning is completely unaffected by the command /gamerule doMobSpawning false. Because they only spawn from spawners and special blocks, they are not affected by the command.
Q. Are Silverfish a sign of a stronghold?
No. Not always. There can silverfish blocks that spawn in extreme hills biomes. It does not really mean that you're near a stronghold.
Q. Are silverfish useful in Minecraft?
They aren’t very useful; however, you can use them as a way of bottling up experience, but there are much faster ways of getting exp.
Q. How do you get rid of silverfish in Minecraft?
Destroying one of these blocks via creepers or TNT will kill the silverfish instantly before it has time to emerge. Try killing them in a single shot so they do not have the chance to summon silverfish from nearby.

This article is about the gray hostile mob. For the joke feature, see Redstone Bug.
Silverfish are small hostile mobs found hiding in stone-like blocks in mountains, strongholds, igloo basements and woodland mansions.
Silverfish spawn from broken infested blocks, which generate in strongholds, underground in mountainsbiomes, igloo basements and woodland mansion false portal rooms. Silverfish do not appear if the block is broken with the Silk Touch enchantment.
Silverfish spawners naturally generate in end portal rooms in strongholds. They can spawn only in light level 11 or lower from spawners and cannot spawn within a 5 block distance of any player. This is the only renewable source of silverfish and infested blocks.
Silverfish have no drops other than 5 experience points when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Silverfish attack players, iron golems, snow golems and call other silverfish in the area upon being hit. The silverfish sees through walls and pathfind towards the player.
When they suffer Poison damage or damage inflicted by the player and survive, they cause other silverfish within a 21×11×21 area to break out of their infested blocks. The player can prevent other silverfish from appearing by killing them in one shot.
Silverfish, being arthropods, take extra damage from the Bane of Arthropods enchantment, and receive Slowness IV upon being hit.
When idle, silverfish enter a nearby deepslate, stone, cobblestone, stone bricks, mossy stone bricks, cracked stone bricks or chiseled stone bricks block, transforming it into the respective infested block if is set to , as per default. They cannot infest mossy cobblestone, despite being capable of infesting both mossy blocks and cobblestone, and they also cannot infest slab and stairs of these blocks. They are also unable to infest andesite, diorite, granite or smooth stone.
